secretary kerry said yesterday was a moral obscenity. the white house felt -- joe biden was speaking in houston, texas, he says there is no doubt that they were used, were these chemical weapons, and there is little doubt who used them. >> for we know that the syrian regime, the only ones who have the weapons have used chemical weapons multiple times in the past, have the means of delivering those weapons, have been determined to wipe out exactly the places that were attacked by chemical weapons. >> all indications point to a cruise missile attack of some sort, perhaps arias sets, allied arias sets as well. we don't know when or who, that coalition is still forming. we don't know what the end goal is. all we do know is what jay carney said today. we know what it's not. >> we are also very much engaged in an effort to support the opposition in its struggle with the assad regime, as the assad regime continues to try to massacre it's a own people in an effort to maintain power. and it's our firm conviction -- [ inaudible ] but this deliberation and the actions that we are contemplating
to the american public has not come out of the president's own mouth so far, it has been joe biden in the clip we saw and before that, john kerry talking about how morally obscene this was. the president himself, his last comments were very equivocal last week in that interview with chris cuomo. even now i see him kind of holding back, reserving his options. but this is snowballing quickly and the president is about to act, not just because of syria, he's worried about iran, he has to be worried about iran in the sense that whatever he does to defend the red line he laid down months ago is going to be closely watched by iran, has its own nuclear weapons program, a new president that's been making overtures about negotiation. >> the audience is bigger than assad and syria if you take military action. the audience i iran, north korea, it is potential users of wmd. this is a key moment for the president. i think there are calls now from congress as we saw that they want some form of consultation, possibly even a vote. i think it would be in the president's self interest to go down that road, to get

of a key international norm that barack obama and joe biden and other world leaders have come together several years ago to prevent and to try to prohibit and create a global allergy against the proliferation and use of weapons of mass destruction, and they believe that not to respond to this case -- it's a very different case than the ongoing questions about assad and internal instability and, you know, the fight for syria. this is about a global norm, and that is why they are going to basically punish parts of the syrian government and try to create a capacity. that's odd about this is that they are basically telegraphing to the world that they're going to do it, and one will have to assess after the fact whether or not syria was able to harden, move, or hide assets that they fear will be attacked. it's not often, i mean, if you were in a perfect military planning incident, you would attack without notice. the obama administration is giving very, very wide notice, in facts an attack is coming in my view. >> steve clemons. washington editor at large for the "atlantic" magazine and som
